72 Hour Film Shootout

If you missed our last 72 hour film challenge, (or if you made it and really loved the experience) here's your chance to make a 5 minute movie in 72 hours!

It's the 5th annual 72 Hour Film Shootout! The 5th Annual 72 Hour Film Shootout begins on Friday, June 20, 2008, at 8pm. The competition theme will be announced at the New York City launch party to be held at White Rabbit Lounge (145 East Houston Street, New York, NY) and simultaneously posted online at 72hourfilmshootout.com at 8pm. As a special treat, New York hip hop sensation Koba will be performing live at the launch party!

The Top 10 will screen at the New York Asian American International Film Festival organized by Asian Cinevision (July 10-19, 2008), the First Annual Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival (October 24-30, 2008), and a special screening event organized by NYC-based Aspire Asian Film Circle.

This year the AAFilmLab together with the Museum of Chinese in America (MoCA) have added a special award category to this years Shootout: The Chinatown Award! Films that incorporate a Chinatown as a location or narrative device are entered into the "Chinatown Award" category. Selection of the winning film will be decided by both MoCA and AAFilmLab. The Chinatown Award will be comprised of in-kind services totaling $3000
from Deluxe New York. (The inclusion of the Chinatown element in a film has no bearing whatsoever on judging for other award categories.) Details can be found at http://www.aafilmlab.org/index.php/shootout2008/

Our last 72 hour film challenge went really well. We had a ton of fun, formed a great crew, and learned a lot. Hopefully even more of you can join us for this challenge!

Depending on the size of our crew, we may need to form 2 or more teams, so please RSVP soon (but only do so if you are SURE you can be there). There is a registration fee, so I ask that everyone chip in $10 to cover that. Once we know our crew, we'll plan an evening before the 20th to get together and plan logistics (locations, schedules, roles, basic script ideas).

Hope to see you there! Let's make a movie!

    Again, another successful planning session. I really enjoy these shootouts, it really makes move to put together something interesting in a short time. In addition, it's a great way to connect with a lot of creative and talented people in a short time. The friendships made endure past the meetup sessions.
